Africa Economic Summit, the first annual summit that establishes Africa as the frontier of global thinking on major economic issues in the world is an assemblage of senior leaders committed to the continent’s growth to discuss issues and frame solutions to the economic problems affecting African nations.
Holding for the third time since its inception in 2022, the Summit delivers a very influential network of leaders from around Africa and the world including top government officials, diplomats, and senior business leaders. The Summit has been successfully held in Cairo Egypt and Lagos Nigeria in the past.
According to the CEO, of Africa Economic Summit Group, Dr Brian Reuben, organizers of the Summit, history shows that value shifts are always triggered by a new story. The current state of the world has given us a rare chance to Africa to rewrite the story of Africa.

Through the Africa Economic Summit African and global leaders come together to facilitate new investments, encourage business development, share best practices, guarantee peer-to-peer networking, offer new industry insight, showcase excellence and promote thought leadership.
